Japanese Cemetery, Broome

(220+ reviews on the web)
Cemetery
Discover Broome’s interesting history, based on the exploits of the men and women who developed the pearling industry in the 1880s, by joining a guided tour of Japanese Cemetery. The riches taken from the sea did not come easily, and this historic cemetery is the resting place of more than 900 Japanese who lost their lives diving for the precious pearls. Many more were lost at sea, and the exact number of deaths is unknown. With its rows of simple headstones, the cemetery is a humble reminder of those intrepid immigrants who lived and died trying to conquer Australia’s seas.

  • A really well maintained cemetery. Good descriptive plaques at the entrance and a complete departure from cemeteries we are accustomed to seeing in Australia.  more »
  • From the cemetery in the town of Japanese names written there is a strange feeling. It seems Japanese people worked for once, take the Pearl cemetery.

  • An interesting place to view the history of what happened to the many Japanese who lost their lives while working in the Pearling Industry.  more »
